I have 2 VMware ESxi servers and a few virual boxes.  I want to add a user with less than admin permissions. This user needs to be able for now to configure a VMserver and reboot it.  eventually it will just need reboot permissions.  There are read-only and administrator.  If I grant read-only will the user still be able to configure the server and reboot the machine?

Yes, you can define it in roles on permissions tab. create a new role and select VM level activities allowed.

No read only user can only view top level, cant even see VM edit level features.
